  1. Sir after completing advanced diploma I want to graduate in Chinese, so what is the criteria for this, and from where I do graduation?

    1. I’m not sure about your question. Either pursue BA in Chinese or Advanced Diploma or Professional course from any institute that will help you to clear HSK Level IV / V. From knowledge point of view, all 3 options are more or less same. After that, you can either go for PG/MA or HSK Level V / VI.

    And if there are any other good job offers for this language, then please suggest me some jobs (but it should a good salary package also).

    1. If i remember correctly, you just started pursuing Certificate in Chinese from DU. As of now, just think about studying for next 3 years.
